I'm not aware of any different types of aspen. There are different sizes in the shavings. I prefer the long, thin pieces over the larger 1" x 1" pieces and the tiny little square pieces. But I think it's more a matter of preference.

In another thread someone was asking if they need to use "lab grade aspen" so there may be different types of it. All you need thought is plain ol' aspen. Like Karen, I prefer the shavings, they are soft, the kind that is chunks or "pieces" is hard and "splintery". Just my personal preference.
